Most things work now correctly,
... except mailto;
for left click. With all mail-clients :
As long as "Hide the mailto message" is not activated
there is no reaction in all mail clients.
When "Hide the mailto message" is activated, the
default browser Firefox etc opens with a window
to select the mail client, which is then opened.
The mailto error mesage bugs me, and that's why I have introdce this feature.
The way I use to open mail composer on mailto link is now right-click, not left-click.
For me, with left-click, when unchecked, I have the message, and checked, K-Meleon does nothing, and never opens Firefox.
Why would it opens Firefox? I haven't installed Windows Firefox, and in the wine registry, Firefox is unknown. It doesn't open Linux Firefox, there is also no reason.
I don't know why this does not work for me.
And me, I don't know why your Firefox is called ...
I have downloaded a fresh copy of KM 1.5.4 .
Me too, on the computer I use know at work, and it works
For Ubuntu I used Evolution, and I have set the string
Does it work for you with Thunderbird ?
The strings like these aren't for mailto purpose, but to help for linux program usage when clicking on a link which must or can open a program, such as doc files, pdf files, .... from within K-Meleon (it uses mimedit feature).
This feature is harder to put in place then the mailto solution I gave. It needs a tool I haven't send. I suppose that you can be interested, and I'll send it. For now it's written with Visual Dialog Script which isn't open, so I want to rewrite it with autoIt3 which is open.
I tried the wine version of Ubuntu Lucid 10.4 which
was newer than what I usually use, but the effect was,
that mailto does not work either and it does not
even open Firefox for mailto.
The structure of the wine configuration is different,
with a folder /users in .wine/drive_c , which was not
there in my older wine version.
It could be difficult to include wine as a fake windows,
if the structure of wine is changed continuously.
What is the wine version that you use ?
I haven't yet upgrade to Lucid, but I'll do it soon
For wine, the structure is like you find it since a long time.
I'm using 1.2 and I update often without real problems, and I always have improvments.
I'm now using 1.1.43 (which is in fact a 1.2 version) on Ubuntu 9.10 at work and an older 1.1.35 (if I remember) on Ubuntu 8.10 at home (I haven't updated this computer due to a low speed connection).
Maybe the mailto command is not working the same way
in different versions.
It could perhaps explain why it opens Firefox for you.
I sticked to a version that worked satisfactorily at the time
because newer is not always better, but can also
be worse in certain cases.
I agree with you, but not this time, because I think this version (1.2) is better than previous, and I notice a better stability of K-Meleon. But it's perhaps also due to Ubuntu, as I don't use the same version on the two computers.
I must say, for wine, that I have had an error message when updating (key problems with launchpad), but it updates correctly.
I don't know for Lucid, I'll see it ...
I tried also with Icedove, which is the same as
Thunderbird in Debian distros, it is only renamed, and it
did not work for me either.
Yes, there are just small differences between these two mail clients, in fact, icedove is a fork of Thunderbird.
Besides that, in Kmail the macro for "Send Clipboard content" does not work.
I'm not suprise, due to special syntax ok kmail, and also to possible presence of " characters in the clipboard.
In fact, what it exactly the problem with it ?
Does it works with selected text ?
Can you look for command line (alert).
